About the Fellowship

North Carolina will have Fellowships for high school students in 3 regions during the 2020 school year: Charlotte/Mecklenburg, Raleigh/Triangle, and Eastern NC (location TBD). Fellows meet weekly to build skills and advocate for local climate solutions through campaigns and events. 63 high school students have participated in the NC Fellowship over the past 6 years.

NC Fellows push for clean energy locally and statewide, collaborate with partners on advocacy campaigns, turn out youth climate voters, meet with elected officials, deliver public comments at City Council, Board of Education, and Legislative meetings, speak at rallies and other events, author posts for ACE’s blog, collect petition signatures, use social media to engage friends and family in campaigns, and facilitate workshops at conferences, among other activities.

A major focus of this year’s Fellowships will be on relational organizing to register youth voters and mobilize them to vote for climate action in 2020!
